Olivia is 17 months

Olivia is now 17 months old and SUCH a character! She is currently up to 11 teeth, top four, bottom three and four molars. She is talking up a storm. You can't always recognize the words she is saying but she talks away. She still screams to get your attention or when she is mad. But 75% of the time if you ask her to use her words she will tell you what she wants or talk gibberish to you. Sometime she will even stop playing look at me and in her own "words" tell me what she wants. My response is usually "show me what you need". She will then take me by my hand and show me. So CUTE! She is still a really good sleeper. She sleeps between 10 and 12 hours at nap and then takes a 2 to 4 hour nap in the afternoon. When she gets up she wants everything out of her crib...several pacis, giraffe and frogie, and both blankets. Olivia is still a picky veggies unless they are hidden in a casserole, soup, etc. She can now climb up into a chair at the kitchen able and thinks she is hot stuff. She loves her juice or milk and often uses her cup as a comfort item. She loves playing with the big kids and pushing toys around the house. Olivia is absolutely in love with Grace! Always giving her hugs and kisses. She gets nervous around new people and will hide her face. She loves to sing and dance. She is currently cries when mommy leaves her with a babysitter or in nursery at church but settles very quickly. She loves being tickled and tickling others. She enjoys duck, duck, goose and ring around the roses, although she falls down before everyone else. She has become mommy's little helper wanting to help vacuum and unload the dishwasher. Olivia is just such a fun girl and we love her to death!
